Lecture 2 1 Equations of State – How far can we push it? (16.3,16.4) Consider the vdW equation of state: ( 29 2 a P V b RT V + - = ( 29 ( 29 2 2 PV a V b RTV + - = 3 2 0 RT a ab V b V V P P P - + + - = ( 29 Cubic equation in V 3 roots ( 29 3 2 0 PV RT bP V aV ab - + + - = Fig. 16.7 Figure shows that below the critical point, liquid and gaseous phase of CO 2 can coexist. c So, at a given T<T , as you compress the gas, (G A) you reach a point where V will change with essentially no increase in P (A D), until all of the gas liquifies. Then, further compression requires a hug e increase in P (D L).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
